New Series...Water's Edge
"My Art is not about what I see but everything I have seen and can imagine."

A new series has been brewing in my mind for quite some time. Over the past couple of years, 
while visiting our western National Parks, I have been drawn to the movement, color, and texture 
of various bodies of water and the borders around them. After collecting many inspirational 
photographs from Zion's Virgin River, Yellowstone's Lake and Snake River, I have begun to 
reflect, reconsider, and expand my concept of water and its edges. Below are the photos that 
have inspired the first painting of the series, "Winter Pond".
